Thermal Analysis for FLIR ONE

Student teams gather temperature data with a LabQuest 2 and share their results with the class

Study the Unseen with Thermal Analysis

Our free Thermal Analysis app offers students a fun and engaging way to study thermal energy. Using Thermal Analysis, students can observe temperature changes on the skin, illustrate convection, track heating due to friction, compare heat conduction in different materials, analyze the transparency of materials in infrared vs. visible light and so much more. What will you explore?

Thermal Analysis requires a FLIR ONE Thermal Camera

Video

Follow along as our Director of Physics, Fran Poodry, walks through the functions of our free Thermal Analysis app. You’ll learn how to analyze the absorption of radiant energy, evaluate the transmission and reflection of infrared light, and determine respiration rate.

Activities

The Thermal Analysis app and FLIR ONE camera are used to measure respiration rate by tracking the the temperature of air entering and exiting the nose.

Biology

  • Determine respiration rate by examining the temperature of the air exiting the nostrils.
  • Explore the effect of vascularity on skin temperature recovery after brief exposure to ice.
  • Compare reptile skin temperatures under a heating lamp and in the shade.
  • Compare plant leaves from different types of plants, such as succulents, herbaceous, and woody plants, in sunlight and different colors of light.
Capillary action

Chemistry

A person holds a piece of clear acrylic between herself and the camera to block infrared light from the left side of her body.

Additional Resources

Since 2010, Dr. Charles Xie of Concord Consortium has been pioneering the applications of IR imaging in chemistry and biology. Read his independent research articles on advanced IR thermography as an important method of chemical imaging:

Almost all chemical processes release or absorb heat. The heat flow in a chemical system reflects the process it is undergoing. By showing the temperature distribution dynamically, infrared (IR) imaging provides a salient visualization of the process.

Features

  • Mark up to four locations or regions on the image to determine the minimum, maximum, or average temperature.
  • Graph live temperature data during an experiment.
  • Capture temperature data for everything within a video frame allowing you to analyze any object at any time.
  • Export thermal image videos to the Photos app or to our Graphical Analysis app for further analysis.
